Is this chili powder ad in Mexican chiles with oregano etc. or is it ground Chile powder as in capsicums / mirch? I know the word chile has several spellings depending on your country, but chile/chili/chilli/chilly does get confusing and as this contains oregano it is perhaps Mexican style. I make the Greek Domates Yemistes but they contain lean ground lamb and mint and mizithra cheese and many other ingredients, so I am not sure which chile/chili/chilli/chilly this recipe calls for, although I have used Aleppo Chile in the Greek ones.
